I use my scrub along edges of boards often enough vs. ripping. Moves lots of material for sure, tough to balance sometimes though. The metallic (Stanley) #5 has an open mouth and is cambered. Draw the iron in and take less.

I’d suggest a jack, properly set for the job, offers versatility your looking for without too much work (and rework)!
